got word from a friend that it was added in Lancaster PA. Not showing up on mine in Elizabethtown though. Was planning on calling them anyway since espn goal line has yet to show up on my cable card even though it was added last week.

Is the channel actually showing any content right now for anyone??

I have the channel but no guide information or anything actually showing on the channel.

According to comcast teds on the xfinity forums they have let beinsport know about the guide issue and they are supposed to be working to get us useable guide data.

Of course i'll be away from home tonight and without the guide I can't set the recording.
I'll need to call them if the channel itself isn't coming in.

You should be able to set a manual recording if you can get home.

I'm guessing I won't get either channel here in Augusta for some time. That's about the norm for our area. We're good enough to test equipment for Comcast but not good enough to get a decent selection of channels.

I won't be home. And the channel isn't showing any programming right now for me. 2 different issues.

FYI - I don't know if this includes you, but this item on the Patriot-News site says that it just became available today in Central PA ("Harrisburg, Hershey and Mechanicsburg areas") on Channel 581: »blog.pennlive.com/fanbox/2012/09···_in.html

does anyone running a cable card setup (tivo or htpc) have this? According to everything I've seen, along with phone and forum interactions with comcast employees, it should have been added in Mt. Joy today. I'm getting nothing in my guide and I can't tune 581 directly either. The phone rep said that he couldn't see any guide data until 11:30 (when the WCQ game is on), so he guessed that it might go live then. I find that extremely hard to believe, since I've always known channel additions to pop up in the middle of the night. I'm quite sure there's not some poor sap just sitting around waiting to flip a switch at 11:30.

Guess I'll put on my pirate hat tonight.

Good question! I'm wondering the same thing, it was a nasty surprise to tune in expecting one match, and see another, feels like bait-and switch. It's hard to be upset over something I've only had for a day...but still, at least get the guide right!

Yes, and as ComcastTeds also said there this afternoon:

Heh. Wow - he must live close to me.

Well, in all honesty, it is a shame that they haven't been able to add the English version of this channel - I mean hell, even if it's only SD.

They have tons of capacity -and the PR splash from a month or so ago was so misleading. They could've saved some face between the 9/9 games and the one coming up this weekend.

Overall it's just an example of awful handling and communication to your customers.

An article on the Sports Illustrated site today:

BeIN Sport growth raises questions over future of soccer on U.S. TV
By Grant Wahl, SI.com - October 12, 2012
»sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/w···barbuda/

From the article:
While beIN Sport hopes to expand its reach on U.S. platforms in the months and years ahead, it isn't easy for all U.S. soccer fans right now to get the network in their homes. Both beIN Sport channels are currently available on the top two satellite providers, DirecTV (in HD) and DISH (in SD), while Comcast, the nation's largest cable provider, is carrying only beIN Sport's Spanish-language channel for now in SD (on its sports entertainment and Hispanic tiers). That means Comcast subscribers will not be able to see the Antigua and Barbuda-U.S. game live. (BeIN Sport's Spanish channel is airing the game on tape delay on Saturday at 3 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET.)

If you don't have a satellite provider, your best bet to see the U.S. game live is to go to a sports bar that has one. Comcast spokesman Peter Dobrow told me his company plans on rolling out beIN Sport's English-language channel in local markets in the months ahead (but only in SD for now).

Al Obaidly said more than 13 million U.S. homes (out of an available 54 million) are now receiving the beIN Sport signal. "We want to make this product available to everybody," he said. "You know how complex the distribution market is within the United States and how crowded it is. We're in the process of negotiating and hopefully reaching agreement with another platform, but we're only 47 days old, a very young sports network." Al Obaidly also denied reports that beIN Sport was paying Comcast for carriage ("we are being paid [by Comcast]").

Had a table of 6 at my favorite local restaurant last night and had the GM put the DirecTV feed of BeIN USA on the closest TV for us.

Definitely an exciting game - it's awesome to see the conditions in these tiny countries.

But back to the point - it's a total embarrassment that the nations largest cable provider still isn't showing this channel. Frankly, I don't even care if it's only SD for now - but you can only beat the horse for so long...

Of Course...

Of course Time Warner Cable (and Brighthouse) announces the launch of both beIN USA and Espanol, in both HD and SD on 11/1.

Why can't CC be a leader?

Where did you hear that TWC and Brighthouse are announcing beIN USA and Espanol on 11/1? I can't find this anywhere and if this is true then that is GREAT news. Please let me know where you heard of this or where I can find further info on this.

beIN Sport USA Coming 12/12 (GOL Being Removed)

My latest bill that was generated overnight has the following information (I'm in Northern Delaware):

On 12/12/12:

beIN Sport USA SD being added to Channel 726

Gol TV SD (726) and Gol TV HD (1513) - REMOVED

So, we are finally getting beIN USA, but only in SD, and they are completely removing GOL SD & HD.

Comcast - WHY AREN'T YOU ADDING HD CHANNELS?? YOU HAVE SO MUCH CAPACITY. WHAT ARE YOU UP TO???

My area just went all digital in June and what does Comcast do.
No new HD channels added and MGMHD will be dropped in Dec.
This is a bad trend by Comcast. I'm thinking on going to Directv.
